Heartland machines driver blades for Paslode Commercial and Residential Nailers.
Paslode is global manufacturer and distributor of commercial and residential nailers marketed under the name brands of Paslode, Spit and Ramset/Redhead. ITW Heartland began making driver blades for Paslode in 1989 using our high precision turning and milling machines. We made investments to automate our processes in 2007 to serve Paslode into the future. Currently we utilize four Fanuc robots for feeds to the milling machines, straightening and quality inspection processes of the driver blade work cells.

Quality has been at the forefront of our Paslode partnership for the past 20 years. Our quality is measured by on time delivery and superior product uniformity. Recently, ITW Heartland has received distinction with the following awards.

“Exlar Corporation and I have been working with ITW Heartland since we were a small start-up company with just two employees. Now, with well over 100 employees, I can say that a large part of Exlar’s success has been due to the support and professionalism of the people at ITW Heartland. I believe Exlar would not be where we are today without the partnership we have enjoyed with ITW Heartland.”Bernard Raidt
